tweeting sequential commands, i think that is cool.

in some ways, its def the wave of the future. a simple command to make your car do lots of automated things

I was waiting for it to hit something. I can't believe they decided to test the parking feature next to an SLS, seriously? Even though an SLS is the ugliest car mercedes has ever made, but still.

this reminds me of how computers used to work on a command basis before window was around and DOS was main stream. Over time a system like this (the principles should allow for a car to do some pretty cool stuff)

I guess that's probably why I'm not impressed haha, that's the computers I grew up with. Simple commands do simple things.
I mean to compare this to the car I mentioned above. Controlling something via a webcam is exactly like controlling via twitter..you just process the commands in such a way.

It's a nice first step, I suppose, but I feel like this could/should have been done a long time ago.
